Trumpf Marks 40 Years in North America

July 13, 2009

FARMINGTON, CT-Trumpf Group’s U.S. subsidiary in Farmington, CT, Trumpf Inc., which is now the second-largest Trumpf location worldwide and headquarters for the entire North American market, is celebrating its 40th anniversary in the United States.

In recognition of this, during the month of July Trumpf Inc. will offer a limited edition of two of its machines developed and manufactured in North America: the TruPunch 2020 and the TruLaser 2030. They are used to fabricate sheet metal. If purchased during July, the founding month of the subsidiary, these American-made models will feature special anniversary pricing and a commemorative decal and name plate.

“Anniversaries are a time when one reflects on the past while turning an eye toward the future,” says President and Chief Executive Officer of Trumpf Inc. Rolf Biekert. “The charge for Trumpf’s future remains as it has been in the past, which is to provide our customers with innovative technology of high quality.”

The Trumpf Group was started in Germany in 1923 by Christian Trumpf and two partners. Its product was flexible shafts, which were initially manufactured for dental and printing use. With the invention of the motor drive they were also produced and distributed for industrial purposes for the machining of metal and wood. Today, Trumpf Group is a world leader in the development and production of machine tools and laser technology.
